GPS RFID school bus tracking systems are providing parents some peace of mind all across the globe. Often one finds headlines about kids being stuck in the school bus, or how parents are worried when their children get late. With tracking equipment using RFID parents have a lot less to worry about on a daily basis. RFID for schools have ensured that the authorities can keep track of the school buses too. They are ultimately responsible for their students and it definitely helps them to carry out their duties better. What is RFID? RFID refers to Radio Frequency Identification, a technology that uses electromagnetic fields to send data. It is extensively used these days to identify and then track objects through the tags attached to them. The .mon thing about tags is that they store information. However, there can be several kinds of tags. There are tags which can be powered by the electromagnetic induction from magnetic fields present in the vicinity. There are other tags which store energy from the radio waves and also act as passive transponders. Yet others may be operated through a battery, and operate at distances of a few hundred meters from the frequency reader. The tag could also be embedded into the object that is being tracked. This technology is being used for several purposes like tracking of automobiles during production, or pharmaceuticals when they are in the warehouse, etc. How does it work? The data from the RFID system can be used in .bination with the data from the GPS tracking system installed in the school buses. This way the school authority can find any student by their identification number, find out about the specific bus that he or she has boarded and if he or she has alighted the bus. Some of these RFID school bus tracking systems can also send text messages to the parents, mention when their kids board the bus and alight them, and even offer an online view of the bus in concern. The major issue with such an RFID system for school buses is the concern for the privacy. A lot of parents believe that these systems interfere with the privacy of their children, and hence are against tracking their kids electronically. The RFID system tells very little about the person carrying them yet can be .promising students privacy. A solution to this problem has to be found out by the technology providers and the schools in conjunction. Overall, it can be said that RFID for schools can prove to be a boon for both the school authority and the parents alike. The popularity of these systems is growing like never before as the data is untampered with and cannot be affected by the drivers or bus attendants. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
